Full course description

The course examines principles & methods underlying the use of R, emphasizing multi-disciplinary, collaborative, & real world uses. We will emphasize practices for collaborative coding using Git/GitHub repositories for storing & sharing code to benefit not only your current collaborators but your most frequent collaborator. We will introduce best practices for organizing data & projects, how to create reproducible examples (a.k.a reprex) for when you get stuck and need to ask the R community for help (but can’t share a full dataset because it’s too large or contains confidential information). Application of principles will be taught through scenarios that public health practitioners encounter.
